Full Text

1 Looking on the bright side, trusting all to Him;
Leaning on the Saviour when the light is dim;
Tho’ the way be thorny, and the mountain steep,
Looking on the bright side, God the soul will keep.

Refrain:
Looking on the bright side, all along the way,
Soon we’ll see the shadows merging into day;
Looking on the bright side, see all bane and blight,
Care and pain and sorrow passing out of sight.

2 Looking on the bright side ev’ry passing day,
We can cheer a trav’ler on the narrow way;
We can tell the story, tell of Him, our Guide,
Who was for a world of sinners crucified. [Refrain]

3 Looking on the bright side, tho’ the shadows fall,
God, within the shadow watches over all;
He is near His children, shields from ev’ry foe,
Gives them peace and comfort in this world below. [Refrain]
